I'm getting sick of not being able to change the volume etc. My TV cabinet is closed, I don't like everything in plain sight. I have to leave a door open, and it looks stupid. So I'm thinking about coverting it from infrared to bluetooth. This also eliminates the sun from blocking the infrared signal.

Does anyone know if this is possible? Preferably an easy swap with emulator or some sort.

Yes

This is for mac devices. --> https://www.google.com/shopping/product/1497456404966698365?q=tv%20ir%20to%20bluetooth&client=firefox-a&hs=GAl&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&bav=on.2,or.r_qf.&bvm=bv.45645796,d.dmQ&biw=1600&bih=709&sa=X&ei=MVp5UcCCHYbn0gGnnIAw&ved=0CGEQ8wIwAjgK

I can't find one for Windows. Grrr.....

Just some thoughts here..... Just as visible LED's have different brightnesses, IR led's have different brightnesses. Often times going to a better IR remote might fix your problems. You can use the camera on your phone to actually view the brightness of the IR led.

Thanks, but I'd prefer to keep using the original remote. There must me something out there than can convert the signals.
